MBAs with Environmental Focus


Danton
Hi all,
My background is in environmental science, with over ten years' work experience. In recent time I have developed an interest in how environmental decisions interact with financial and economic ones, often much to the detriment of the natural environment. In particular I am interested in how climate resilience can be factored into business decisions.
I am interested in pursuing an MBA when I can explore this theme as well as gaining the other managerial skills associated with an MBA. Does anyone have any suggestions for MBAs that have a environmental or climate change theme / option? Is this even a good idea, or am I better pursuing a general MBA within which I can investigate this subject in the context of a more conventional syllabus?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you . . .

I don't think these fit well together. Why not take an MSc in social or environmental business and then a one year MBA?

Thanks for your reply Duncan.
I suppose there are four reasons why I wouldn't do this
1. Time
2. Money
3. I already have an MSc
4. I think it is precisely because they're not seen as a good fit in conventional MBA circles and the wider business world is what is motivating me to do this. They will imho have to become a much better fit in the future. Trade, transport, infrastructure, energy production, agri-business and all the other things that are built on those cannot continue as they are. And it is our way of doing business that will have to adapt to our natural environment, not the other way around.
Anyway, there endeth the lecture. I'll just have to keep shaking my fist at the sky . . .

My take : http://www.influencerrelations.com/1329/is-sustainable-business-selfish-or-altruistic

Maybe consider HEC?

What do you imagine doing with the degree after you're done? Become some kind of CSR consultant, maybe?

If it's something like that, maybe look at schools that are strong for CSR? Berkeley, Oxford, Audencia...
